Vancouver's got some new restaurants cooking up a bunch of great experiences and we don't want you to miss out! Take a tour around the city and hit every neighborhood in our Neighbourhood Restaurant Round-Up.
Vancouver’s got a new restaurant in town, and it’s not one to miss. Launched in December, Verre opened its doors at 550 Denman Street. Located right along the Seawall, the restaurant is positioned in the heart of Coal Harbour and is only steps away from the entrance to Stanley Park. It’s the perfect location to experience internationally renowned Chef Liam Breen’s French-Mediterranean cuisine. Menu items include Duck Rillettes with red wine cherry compote and Parmesan-Coated Veal chop in a caper marsala sauce. Verre also offers a complete and delicious vegetarian menu.
Not only is the restaurant named after glass, but the space also showcases a clear glass wall that provides guests with a full view of the kitchen. Verre’s location also allows for stunning views of Coal Harbour and the North Shore Mountains. The eatery is set to open a 25-seat heated patio facing the seawall later this year. Verre also plans to serve weekend brunch beginning mid-March (official date TBD, check the website or call for more information). The full dining menu is offered 5pm to midnight, with a happy hour menu available Tuesday to Sunday 5pm-6pm and 10pm until close.

Coquille Fine Seafood
Coquille Fine Seafood is a beautiful restaurant, conveniently located in Vancouver’s historic Gastown. The restaurant is the most recent project from the team that established the ever so elegant, L’Abattoir. Coquille opened its doors in 2018 and is proud to be celebrating its one-year anniversary with what they are best known for: a deliberate and thoughtful wine list, local craft beers, classic cocktails, and a gorgeous array of fresh seafood. Speaking of fresh seafood, it’s almost halibut season, and the Ocean Wise partnered restaurant is looking forward to showcasing all of the sustainable and local catches the fishermen have to offer.
Following Dine Out Vancouver Festival, Chef and Owner, Lee Cooper is working on preparing the spring menu items alongside Coquille’s Chef de Cuisine, Chris Janowski. These items will be showcased on the lunch and dinner menus in the coming weeks. Lastly, don’t forget to check out their seasonal patio when the weather warms up. It’s a fabulous spot to enjoy the sun, some drinks, and great company!

The Vancouver hospitality team behind some of the city’s most conceptually playful dining-and-drinking destinations — The Emerald Supper Club, Narrow Lounge, Uncle Abe’s, and Rumpus Room — proudly introduces its newest creation: Key Party.
Located beside Rumpus Room (at 2303 Main St.), Key Party is an “open secret” that guests enter through an unassuming storefront whose signage reads “Zottenberg & Sons Accounting.” Once inside, they discover a casual 40-seat lounge whose name and design nod to the mischievous, civilized-but-swinging spirit of a 1970s adult house party.
Key Party’s cocktail program continues the theme, from riffs on retro classics such as Spiced Sunrise, Coconut Cream Grasshopper, B-52, and Cherry Paralyzer, to fun creations such as jello shots made with champagne and cassis liqueur. Better still, every drink order is accompanied by a complimentary bowl of party mix, while the compact food menu offers the shareable likes of chili-cheese dip, veggie tapenade, and more classic snacks that will bring back fond memories.
Key Party’s intimate size and low lighting, its mix of high-top tables and bar seating, and an epic hand-painted bar mural, all combine to make it the perfect spot from which to launch or end your night.
Key Party is open daily from 5pm.
Sunday to Thursday:5pm – 1am
Friday & Saturday: 5pm – 2am
